Sweet Julie, my godchild and cousin, may you find God's grace and peace as you begin your next journey.

My Dear Cousin Julie, you are missed. You left us way too soon. I find great solace in knowing that my Mom, your Beloved Aunt Betty who adored you so, reached her arms down to lift you up to be with her and the others precious to you who have passed. I have so many very tender memories of our childhood together on Long Island and those trips to the beach with Karen when we smuggled in my dog, Jombo (makes me smile). Nothing will ever take those memories away and someday we shall all meet...

Julie lived in my neighborhood in Johnson City. I would see her about every day until she got couldn't run or walk. I loved to see her smile and we would talked and laughed about life. But we prayed also for each other. My heart is so sad but I know Heaven has gain an Angel for eternality. Julie can now see her dogs that have been waiting for her to join them on the rainbow bridge. Julie was precious to me and I loved her dearly. I will pray for Stan, Karen and Kaitlin that God will...

Prayers for family and friends.

Julie was a good friend. She had a kind heart and a keen intellect as well as her tremendous musical talent. I was fortunate to meet her at Wesley Memorial UMC and become her friend. The time spent with her will be long remembered.

Till we meet again...

I used to see Julie riding her bike when walking my dog on Rangewood Road in Piney Flats for several years before I met her at Wesley Memorial UMC. She was always a kind, positive and generous spirit. I worried about her these past couple years. You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. May she now rest in peace. Joan Scheu

Dear Cousin Julie; I'm holding you always in my blessings. I value and am grateful for our connection of heart and soul.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way home.

Oh, dear Lord. I knew "Dr. J" was suffering a lot with persistent health problems, but I had no idea she was close to death,

It was just a few months ago that she wisely recommended to me her book, "Depression and the Evidence or Positive Focus, Humor and Laughter" which I promptly put on my Kindle: it's a good, practical read. Julie was a spiritually generous woman, helped me to get a better insight into my troubled son, and was very kind to...
